Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grafton District Curriculum
Taylor County Schools students take tests and assessments so their teachers can gauge where they are at and help them achieve to the best of their abilities. WESTest2 tests are given to evaluate proficiency in Core subject. There is also a program that helps students write according to expected requirements called WV Writes. This program allows students to practice writing and gain feedback based on their performance which can help them on state and standardized tests. MAP tests are also given to assess students’ level in reading, writing and math. These tests also help teachers know how students need to improve. These are taken three times per year in grades kindergarten through ten.
Outside the classroom, students have different projects they can work on to raise awareness about local or national issues, participate in character development activities, and work with other students on works of art or putting together exhibits. These learning opportunities are emphasized for the collaborative abilities they develop in the students.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: How to Study Effectively
Studying can be difficult and students often find that studying is a learned habit, not one that comes natural. Here are a few ways to help you in the studying process. Begin by setting aside a time and a place for studying. It should be clean and organized, ready each day for your studying needs. It is good to keep whatever studying tools you usually use in that location as well. These could include writing and highlighting utensils, rulers, flash cards, notebooks, folders, or other items. When you study, shut other things down. Don’t have Facebook, the TV and your cell phone all up at the same time. Work for the length of time that you can concentrate and then take a break. Breaks should not be longer than 10 minutes. If you can study well for 20 minutes but then need a break, go ahead and take one. You will find that your time will be far more efficiently spent.
